%X In this paper we investigate two major topics; firstly,
   through a survey given to graduate students in a parallel
   message passing programming class, we categorize the errors
   they made (and the ways they fixed the bugs) into a number
   of categories. Secondly, we analyze these answers and
   provide some insight into how software could be built to aid
   the development, deployment, and debugging of parallel
   message passing systems. We draw parallels to similar
   studies done for sequential programming, and finally show
   how the idea of multilevel debugging relates to the results
   from the survey.
